It's also hard to see what is happening in 'C'. When I execute

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(int cnt, char *argv[], char *env[], char *aux[])
printf("Aux 0 = %s\n", aux[0]);
// printf("Aux 1 = %s\n", aux[1]);

I get:

Aux 0 = GLIBC_2.0

The next pointer is a NULL pointer, so 'C' has dorked something.
When I play in assembler, (crt.o startup) I get a pointer that
points to:

bffffb6c - pointer of the stack
00000020 - dereferenced

This shows that, that got called first, didn't
preserve the vector.
